Restaurants & Bars 2

1 week in Chennai

I'll be spending a week in Chennai for business and would appreciate a few dinner recommendations while I'm there.

Will be staying at the Hilton Chennai in the Guindy neighborhood and working at DLF Info City in Ramapuram.

I'll be mainly dining with one coworker for whom the priority is not getting ill from bad food!
Had a great previous trip to Delhi 2 years ago that was adventurous and delicious, but looks like I'll have to play it safe this time.

Pretty sure we'll take all breakfasts at the hotel and lunches in the office, so really looking for 5 mid-priced dinner spots that are both very tasty and very clean (not necessarily upscale). We'll likely taxi or hire cars to get around.

Please suggest some restaurants and specific dishes to order that will satisfy both our needs.
I am hoping to not dine only in hotel restaurants, but am open to any that fit the bill.
Prefer Indian cuisine, southern or other regions, and will try to convince my coworker to hit at least Saravana Bhavan with me.

Thanks for any recommendations!
